Some things just should not be mixed

cuban and alt. rock are two of them. Independently, two of my favourite kinds of music, and some of my favourite bands are on that cover. But together? Terrible! I would give money to charity, but not to that kind of really bad fusion.

I liked the song except that there seemed to be an extra trumpet playing at random intervals that was completely uncorrelated with the song.

Maybe there were too many performers and they had a quota system or something.

yeah, the odd trumpet was a problem. plus "Clocks" does not jive with cheery accompaniment like that. it was all wrong.

and in a bid to discourage further PJs, I will desist from putting up a smiley for the one you just cracked.

I love coldplay. I would love to see what they have for U2 and what they come up with there! Gosh... blasphemy!

U2 is the most politically active band and I do really appreciate what they are doing. I am not a big fan of rock, they appeal me only when I am drunk.

TGFI,

You called that a PJ?? Are you sure you didn't mean 'an evolved piece of cross-cultural political satire' instead?

Kaiser Chiefs with Cuban trumpets. Hmm interesting. Where exactly do the trumpets come in? Are they like the punchline of 'Every day I like you less and less'? Sorta like a fullstop.

qsg,
blasphemy only.

satya,
i love U2, even when I'm sober. :P. and yes, I applaud their activism too. but this fusion business sucks.

kaushik,
ahahhhahaahhahahahaha!!!!! :)
and no.

hi revealed!
the runaway trumpet is all awry during "clocks", the coldplay song. i haven't listened to kaiser chiefs on there yet. i had enough with coldplay and u2 being murdered.
